DESSENT is best described as a one-act, acoustic monologue-opera. This dystopian performance narrates the potential stages of societal collapse in the wake of environmental catastrophe through a combination of song, music, poetry and symbolism. It explores the consequences of not implementing systemic change to avert societal overshoot and collapse in the wake of short-sighted, extractivist, growth-oriented 'development' without concern for its consequences.

There is no interlude (no applause) between the sections of the work which runs for 35 minutes. Words are projected onto a screen so that the audience can follow the story. On a musical level, the work is often dark and confronting.
